Police name Congleton woman who died following a serious incident

Police have named a 35-year-old woman who died following a serious incident in Congleton.

At 2.08am on Sunday 24 September, police were notified that a woman, Charlotte Dodd from Congleton, had been found unconscious at the roadside on Padgbury Lane, near to Arnside Avenue.

Officers and ambulance attended, and Charlotte was taken to the Royal Stoke Hospital, where she sadly died. Her family said of their loss: “We have lost our beautiful girl in the most tragic way. We ask as a family to be allowed to grieve in private.”

The incident involved a white Peugeot Bipper van and a 32-year-old man, who is known to the woman, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and also subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder. The man, who is from the Crewe area, has since been released on conditional bail.

Detective Inspector David Hutcheon said:

“Whilst it took place in the early hours of the morning, I would ask anyone who was driving through the area at that time, or who lives nearby and may have seen or heard something, to get in touch.  I would ask members of the community in that area to check their CCTV systems to see if they have had any activations including audio recordings around this time.”

“The same goes for anyone with any dashcam footage which may aid the investigation.”

If you have any information that could help, please contact Cheshire Police by calling 101, quoting IML 1652258, or provide details online:
